Make it Golden

Day 85 of Kim Klassen's Course.

This is a bay mouse the kids found in our compost. So sweet; it's sad that they are a pest. We let them go - probably we'll regret that later as we hear the scurrying of tiny feet in our ceiling!

Kim showed making a picture appear filled with golden light using her texture 'Kristin'. This is a baby rat my son found as he worked on our compost bin.

Here's another picture using this process:

  1. Very nice color. The baby is so cute.

  2. Thanks for stopping by to comment.

  3. The light effect is perfect, but it is the composition that speaks to me. It seems to sum up perfectly how much power we humans have over the planet and the creatures we share it with - and how we should be so gentle with that power.

  4. Thanks, Colleen. I felt my son's gentleness, too, and was proud of him for being that way.


Thank you so much for your friendly comments. It makes my day to hear from you about my artworks and topics.
